"I SUFFERED FROM
NERVOUS DEPRESSION" . .
says Miss Morris
"I have been in Deaconess
work for 22 years and was all
fagged out. I suffered from
nervous depression and female
weakness. The Vegetable
Compound did wonders for me
in relieving my tired nerves.
At present I am nursing my
crippled father and I shall take
the Compound again when I
feel the need.''— Miss Myrtle
M. Morris, Burford, Ontario.
"IT RELIEVED MY BACKACHE" . . says Mrs. Spring.
"I think everyone should know about your Vegetable
Compound. I took it before my baby was born and I
take it whenever I fegj run down. About a year ago I
suffered terrible pains in my abdomen. My back felt
as though it were almost ciit in two at times. Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound gave me almost imme-
diate relief."— Mrs. Maude E. Spring, 140 Main Street

Strengthened After Operation
"I was a music teacher and pianist in a dance orches-
tra. In 1928 I fell and injured my knee joint. It devel-
oped into a very bad case of osteomylitis. I had three
operations in eighteen months. One year ago I began
walking, although my knee is stiff. In my weakened
condition I was also troubled with women's ailments.
My sister advised me to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Veg-
etable Compound, and I did. It gave me so much more
pep and strength. I have taken both the Vegetable
Compound and the Tablets during the past year. Also
the Liver Pills. All these medicines help me."

results. My nerves are better and I have gained pep. I have
a good appetite and feel much better than I did. I have read

The Medicine Your Mother and Your
6 Grandmother Depended On
How About Your Table?
Even the simplest meal
seems to taste better if
the table is attractive.
Dishes and glassware
need not be expensive.
Very dainty ones can be
purchased at the 5 and 10
Cent Store. Buy several
sets in different colors for
variety. Colored cloths
and napkins are popular
now especially in the
small luncheon and
breakfast sizes. They
launder easily and make
the table look bright and
cheerful. A few flowers in
the center of the table are
nice. Keep them low. It
is very annoying to have
to talk across the table
through the centerpiece.
Above all, keep the table clean and neat. Let your
dishes be immaculate, your silver shining, your glass
sparklmg and your linen spotless. A table should never
look as if everything had been '^thrown'' on it. Keep
the knives, forks, and spoons straight and the dishes
Place the knife at the right of the plate with the
sharp edge toward the plate. Fork at the left of the
plate, tmes up. Teaspoon beyond the knife. If several
spoons and more than one knife and fork are needed for
the meal, place them in the order they will be used
working toward the plate.
The bread and butter plate goes at the left, beyond
and above the fork. Water glass at the right, above the
If hot meat is to be served, warm the plates.
Before serving dessert, remove all used dishes and
silver. Brush the crumbs from the table cloth 7

Use a Lot of Milk
Milk is our most near-
ly perfect food. Consid-
ering the nutriment it
contains, it is our cheap-
est food also. In paring
down your food bills, do
not skimp on milk.
Children should have a
quart of milk every day ;
adults at least a pint. It
is not necessary to drink
all this milk. Use it in
cream sauces, puddings,
cream toast, ice cream,
soups, chowders, cakes and in many other ways. Chil-
dren can take quite a quantity of milk on their cereals.
The regular and generous use of milk in any form
will help to increase weight and promote growth. Milk
is highly recommended for underweight children and
Sometimes children and invalids, who should drink
milk, refuse it because they dislike the taste. To over-
come this difficulty, flavor the milk with chocolate,
vanilla or nutmeg. Some-
times the novelty of
irinking through a straw
will overcome a child's
aversion to milk. Oval-
tine, Cocomalt and other
hot drinks are valuable
for the milk they require
as well as for the choco-
late and other ingred-
ients which they contain.
Such a hot drink is excel-
lent to induce sleep.

Lydia E. Pinkham's Tablets
Helped This Woman Wonderfully
**I took your Tablets for periodic pain and backache.
Before I started taking this medicine, I kept getting
worse every month. For about a week before I would
get so weak and nervous that sometimes I just thought
I couldn't stand to live a bit longer. I would get crying
spells and just cry for two or three hours at a time and
not even know what I was crying about. When that was
over I would feel so tired, and I couldn't sleep or even
eat a meal. The cooking of it was all I could do. I kept
getting thinner all the time and thought I had better
do something about it. I saw your medicine advertised
in the papers and read letters from different ones which
had used it. So I thought there would be no harm in
giving it a trial. I bought a box of Tablets and I notic-
ed a difference right away. I have only used one box,
but I certainly feel like a new person. I have vowed I
shall never be without a supply of them in my medicine
chest any more. I will certainly tell all my friends
about the wonderful results received."

How's Your Complexion
Does a pimply face embarrass you?
Humors and eruptions
are among the most com-
mon indications and re-
sults of a run-down condi-
tion. Such eruptions are
unpleasant, often embar-
rassing, and give the face
an unhealthy appearance.
^They are not usually es-
pecially serious or danger-
ous. More serious results
may come, however, at
any time from the ac-
cumulated impurities which they indicate.
Good home treatment is necessary. Eat plain, nutri-
tious and easily digested food. Get plenty of sleep
and fresh air. Take Lydia E. Pinkham's Blood Medicine
one-half hour before meals. If constipation is present
— as it often is — take Lydia E. Pinkham's Liver Pills.
The Blood Medicine works in harmony with both the
Vegetable Compound and the Liver Pills.

Serve Soup for Health
In planning budget
meals for your family do
not overlook the value of
soup. Either as a first
course or as the main part
of the meal, soups, broths
and stews are nourishing,
economical and excellent
for children. Canned
soups are delicious and
are now available in such variety that it hardly seems
worthwhile to make our own. Keep several cans in
the pantry for emergencies. These concentrated soups
are usually prepared by adding water. For a cream
soup, substitute milk.
Cut stale bread in slices V2 inch thick. Trim off crusts and cut
the bread into V2 inch squares, or into strips if you prefer. Put
them in a shallow pan and bake in a moderate oven until golden
brown. Keep in glass jars to serve with soup.
Split round common crackers in halves. Spread the inside with
butter. Lay the crackers buttered side up on a cookie sheet or
shallow pan and bake in the oven until golden brown. Serve
with soup. These may also be served hot to eat with jelly or
V2 cup sugar 1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 cup boiling water l^^ tbsp. lemon juice
or tsp. lemon extract
Mix sugar and cornstarch in a double boiler. Add water slowly,
stirring constantly to prevent lumps. Cook 5 minutes. Add
lemon juice. Remove from fire and serve hot. Excellent for a
sauce on pudding. A good way to use up stale cake, too.
